dc.description.abstract In the face of the growing phenomenon of neo-Pentecostalism or Charismatic renewal and its aggression in mission, it is imperative to consider how other church traditions reflect on the theology of the charismata and mission. This study investigates the Reformed tradition as represented in this case by John Calvin. This study is necessitated by accusations levelled against the Reformed faith and theology that it lacks zeal for missions because it is reluctant to use the full armour of the charismata in the life of the church. This study explores the ways in which Calvin, the father of Calvinism and one of the leading Reformers of the 16th century, addressed the issue of the charismata through his writings. It also seeks to investigate the influence of Calvin's theology on the Reformed Confessions and the church's missionary calling. The study, therefore, reflects on the doctrine of the Holy Spirit and His ongoing relationship to the church. It points to the fact that the evangelistic effect of Calvinism lies in its scriptural thought and phraseology, as well as its intense spirituality, lofty enthusiasm, and logical strength in its clear formulation of the Christian doctrines that have direct implications to the church's missionary calling
